    I'm using a Soundblaster 4.1 in my HTPC and use the 3.5mm jack to phono adaptor to get DD/DTS passthrough, and this works well.

    I now want to do the same thing to my desk top machine, but the 4.1 is no longer available - I'm looking at the OE version of the SB 5.1 (£16), and assume this will be exactly the same (what's the difference betwen the two?), but if anyone has an alternative card to suggest I'd be interested.

    TIA

    Gary
